Crocheted version of Mick Rock photo of Bowie by missdolkapots
Crocheted version of Mick Rock photo of Bowie
This year I decided to start a new series, which is to crochet dolls based on Rock'n'Roll iconic photos. I had start with Bowie of course, with a photo taken by the legendary Mick Rock.

You can read more about this project on my blog at: missdolkapots.wordpress.com/20…

Today I went to Hobby Lobby to buy something I wanted for the longest time, a wooden mannequin.  Their purpose are normally for drawing but I realized that it would help me figure out proportions when I crochet dolls, which will come handy for my next project: another Bowie doll.

I have made Bowie dolls in the past, three of them actually, so you might wonder why make another one? This time, I am taking it to the next level. I am going to reproduce a scene from a photo that was taken during the Ziggy Stardust era. He is sitting on a chair, wearing his famous red boots, and a very glittery outfit.

I am going to use wire and doll joints to make the doll posable, this way I will be able to make him sit in the same position as the photo. I will also make the chair, and set it on a red display. I am also using fabric to make the clothes instead of crocheting them.  I found some really cool glittery material that looks similar to his outfit, it will allow me to put my new sewing machine to good use.

I am very excited about this fan art project :)

Teemo
Teemo from League of Legends. I made this for a friend who plays the game. He is really small, about 6 inch tall.

Leia, Yoda and C-3PO by missdolkapots
Leia, Yoda and C-3PO
Here they are, I had to take a photo of the three of them together. Yoda can teach me how to use the force, C-3PO how to speak foreign languages, and Leia.. Well, maybe she can hand me over Han Solo?

C-3PO by missdolkapots
C-3PO
Another Star Wars doll, C-3PO. I had a lot of fun making this one, it's my first yarn droid. He's about 10 inch tall, I made it for a little girl who loves Star Wars so I really wanted it to look cute. I am happy with the result, considering that C-3PO has so many details, it would drive a perfectionist mad! lol
